Russian-born, now settled in Kings Langley, Daria Kulesh combines a 'refined and cut glass crystal voice' with strong Russian and Ingush heritage, conjuring a beguiling romanticism. Dynamic delivery and passion come to the fore in her debut solo album, Eternal Child, described as 'phenomenal' by FATEA Magazine and named 'Album of the Month' and runner up in ‘Best Album of 2015 from a Female Artist’ by FolkWords, among numerous other accolades.
From performing in a resident band at an Irish pub near the Kremlin to singing at a charity gala at the former Moscow Governor's palace; from busking in Nova Scotia, Canada to playing at Cambridge Folk Festival and the Southbank Centre, Daria's musical and personal journey is turbulent and varied – and her songs reflect that.
In addition to solo work, Daria fronts KARA, a fast rising 'unique & innovative' band – championed, in particular, by The Telegraph (Best Folk Albums of the Year list) – who have just released their second album Some Other Shore; she is also a member of The Company of Players. Daria’s second solo album, Long Lost Home, is due in February 2017 – with Mike Harding describing the recently released single The Moon and the Pilot as 'one of the most beautiful new songs of the last 10 years'.
